The work requirements apply to able-bodied adults who:

 

(a)  are at least age 18 but not yet 50 years of age (once age 50, a person becomes exempt from ABAWD), and

 

(b) do not have dependent children, and

 

(c)  are not otherwise exempt from work.

 

Note:  ABAWDs residing in a Labor Surplus area (LSA) or a county with 10% unemployment rate are not subject to the time limits as the county is exempt from this requirement.
